Jackson County, OR — Environmental activists rallied in Ashland on Friday, going from bank to bank to protest Wall Street’s involvement in the Enbridge Pipeline, which is set to transport 760,000 barrels of oil a day partially through tribal lands in Minnesota.
“The larger issue, of course, is global warming. And the people in this valley have had a good dose of it this summer. If you’re in any doubt that we’re in trouble, the 115-degree weather this summer should’ve ended all your uncertainty,” said rally organizer Herbert Rothschild.
